6 Sustainable Australian Clothing Brands Leading The Way

Sustainable Australian Clothing Brands

As consumers drive the fashion industry towards greater sustainability, it’s not so surprising to see that sustainable Australian clothing brands have embraced the trend and are now leading the way. From pre-loved to made-to-order, whatever their methods, they all have one thing in common, the desire to go gently on our planet.

One of the key factors that make clothing sustainable is the use of eco-friendly materials. Local label HAB Australia uses hemp, an eco-friendly fabric that is much kinder to the planet than most others.

Another vital aspect of sustainable fashion is ethical production. This is not only about ensuring fair wages and safe working conditions throughout the supply chain, it can also be about choosing hand-made garments and accessories rather than mass produced products. On that score, Love of Clogs comes out on top.

Of course circular fashion is the best form of sustainability and that’s where game changer The Sustainable Clothing Co comes in. All their gear is pre-loved, while at the same time very cool. They’re in good company with House of Taylor Collective who hand-make one-off stylish dresses out of ….TEA TOWELS and other vintage fabrics.

Then there’s Harlow, a premium Australian plus size brand which makes garments only after they have been pre-ordered and they’re made right here in Melbourne. And another premium made-to-order sustainable Australian clothing brand that you need to know about that also caters for curves is Peloponnese the Label.

Stylist Tracey Bryans put together a number of different looks featuring these leading sustainable Australian clothing brands. Emphasising sustainable living, each look features different forms of sustainable transport, from roller-blades to skateboards, the humble foot, to electric cars.
